The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team opened its fall season by playing to a scoreless draw Saturday against Our Lady of the Valley in Palmer.
CIA head coach Kenny Leaf said in a text that goalie Lucas Cragg earned a clean sheet in goal in his first game of the young season. Leaf also praised the play of team captains Annika Castenholz and Isaac Johnson. Leaf said OLV “soundly defeated” Tri-Valley on Friday, putting Saturday’s result in comparison.
“Hard fought game today against OLV,” he wrote. “Hats off to our lady Eagles who filled six of our starting positions and played most of the game.”
The Eagles will face Lumen Christi on Friday at 4 p.m. at Kincaid Park in Anchorage.
